Caution! Writing a letter to this prisoner could have lasting side effects such as big smiles, fits of laughter, and a feeling of light-heartedness! I have spent the majority of my incarceration improving myself. I'm not perfect, I realize that. I am still looking to continue improving. I would be deeply appreciative to you if you could find time to help with your ideas, and how I can be...
